Caribbean/African cuisine is another of those international cuisines that threatens to be the next big thing but never quite makes it possibly due to the lack of a large enough body of restaurants. Sales of Caribbean food in Uk are now worth £77 million and growing at 20% a year as it is featured prominently in more and more supermarkets and food outlets. Trip Advisor now list 78 Caribbean restaurants in London.

Dishes to try

Car ibbean cuisine is so exciting because it reflects the individual taste of the many islands in the region and several different cultures. From Antigua comes Fungee & pepperpot, from Bahamas Crack Conch Peas & Rice, From Barbados Coucou & Flying Fish, from Cuba Ropa Vioja, from Dominica Mountain Chicken, from Dominican Republic Sancocho, from Haiti Griots with Rice & Beans, from Jamaica Ackee & Salt Fish, from Puerto Rico Arroz con Gandulez and Pernil, from Trinidad & Tobago Crab & Calaloo, not to forget the areas most popular spicy jerk.

Southern Louisiana is the birthplace of both Cajun and Creole cuisine. More people are getting to appreciate the flavours of the food from Cajun Cod, Crawfish Etoufee, Jambalaya, Cajun Port Roast to Blackened Chicken and Cajun Sea Bass. The main reason it has not taken off in UK is generally lack of knowledge with a small restaurant base and limited supermarket support but its day will come.
